I really don’t think Martin tripped him on purpose. I believe that he was about to fall himself and hooked the hockey players foot by accident in an effort to prevent from falling himself.
Umm I’m sorry but anyone who thinks this was accidental is delusional. This man quite obviously meant to trip the boy. He needs to put his big boy pants on and admit he was wrong and apologize and face the music. This is quite sad to see when this is someone people are trusting to be a leader and role model for their children, unfortunately things like this happen all too often in minor sports, this guy just got caught on camera.
